England defender Stephen Warnock is to turn down a short-term move to West Ham in favour of signing a longer contract with Championship side Leeds United.

The 31-year-old Warnock was set to leave Aston Villa, where he has been left out in the cold by manager Paul Lambert, and had been expected to join West Ham on a free transfer until the end of the season.

But it now appears that left-back Warnock, who was on loan at Bolton earlier in the season having been left out of Villa’s 25-man Premier League squad, will opt to join Leeds United with the offer of a longer-term contract on the table, according to Sky Sports.

“Stephen we thought was a go-er, but another club in the Championship made him a more long-term offer which I think he has accepted, so I think he has decided to take that so that,” West Ham boss Sam Allardyce said.
